As a young athlete from Aspen, CO, Simi Hamilton had his pick of mountain sports to pursue. An accomplished mountain biker, white water paddler, climber and ski mountaineer, Hamilton gained fitness from a wealth of activity that he put into skiing. The three-time NCAA All-American was working as an EXUM guide, leading clients up the Grand Teton when he made his move to elite racing in 2010. With two Olympics, three World Championship teams and a very notable World Cup stage win during the 2014 Lenzerheide Tour de Ski stage, as well as two podiums in the 2015-16 season, Hamilton is among the top cross country sprinters in the world, but remains on the hunt for consistency in his results. He prepares for upcoming seasons with the SMS/T2 program in Stratton, VT.
